A Worthwhile Movie

Recommended Posts

Currently on Netflix is a a movie called *The Shack*. It stars Sam Worthington and also has Tim McGraw in it. It's about a man's terrible agony and his journey to renewing and reaffirming his faith.It is definitely not an easy movie to watch and some will disagree with some of the way religion is portrayed and how some things are explained.

In spite of those opinions, I honestly think this is a movie that bears watching. The viewer will experience a great sadness, but also a great joy.  It actually helped me to understand things in a way I had never thought of before.

Just to let you all know, I cried a few times throughout this movie. At times it was because of the sadness but at other times it was because of the sheer beauty of this man coming to understand what had happened to him and his family.

I read some religious critics views and to me they missed the point.  For some people, me included, this movie moved me deeply. It hasn't lessened my faith, it has most assuredly deepened it. I think because it explains things differently than most of us have been taught and explains them very simply that the religious critics were possibly afraid of the effect it might have on some members of their congregation. I have no way of knowing that for sure, it's just my opinion.

In any case if you do get a chance to watch this movie, I highly recommend it.
